#8. LaRon Landry, FS
#39. Ryan Harris, OT or Tony Ugoh, OT
#73. Fred Bennett, CB
It's gonna be J-mac.. Russel with the 8th pick
Come on Kubiak & Smith make it happen!
At the moment my priority list remains:
1) Adrian Peterson
2) Leon Hall
3) LaRon Landry
This list is subject to change over the coming months and will likely change several times.
Russel would be a great pick, but I doubt he is there at the 8th.
Somebody other than who the sports media thinks the Texans should take, so the whining and gnashing of teeth will continue.
Get either Landry, (EDIT) my bad, Nelson, or Merriweather
Reggie Nelson S 6'1 193 Florida
If we have the 8th pick in the first round, I believe that Minn would then leap frog us to the back of the 3-team, 6-win team pack and we would therefore edge foreward to get the 39th pick, but then we would leap to the back of the line and get the 73rd. Please advise.
Is that Jamarcus Russell? Are you guys serious? No way I want that guy. He won't even be a first round pick.
If we can't get AP which we won't b/c Cleveland will take him, then we need a safety or corner.
If Russell comes out, he is a first round lock. He should push Quinn for first QB taken.
Fred Bennett won't be there in the 3rd. He is going to fly up the boards just like Johnathen Joseph last year. Measurables guy.
No way Peterson is still on the board with the 8th pick. I would love to see it happen, but it won't.
According to the chronicle, the following are the Texans picks:
1st round - 8th pick
2nd round - 7th pick
3rd round - 9th pick
4th round - 8th pick
5th round - 7th pick
6th round - 9th pick
7th round - 8th pick
Basically, the order rotates among the three 6-10 teams (Minnesota, Miami, and Houston).
1-landry or revis.
2-OT or S or CB
I know Taylor had a good game, but come on it was an injured Browns team with nothing to play for.
uh.... am i the only one who wants Alan Branch? we have a terrible pass rush even though we blitz a lot, and Mario Williams always get double-blocked. Alan Branch will help stopping the run, too.
I like this pick! We need more PUSH in the middle instead of just holding the line! Payne might be done & T.J. might not be the answer! Please KEEP Maddox & Dalton for depth! GO TEXANS!
How do you think Branch will help Mario? He doesn't get pennatration. He had 1 freaking sack for all his size and potential. He is a clog who doesn't excell at run stopping either. You want a DT, ok. Look at Okoye, Mebane, Bryant, Harrell, Dorsey...look past wasting our #1 pick on a guy who won't actually help Mario.
How many DT's have significant impact in their first year and a half? I don't like Branch with this pick.
Very few DT's have the physicallity to succede, then there is the whole technique and getting past the offensive holding thing. DT is a hard position to make an impact in initially. That is why I support a later round DT who can pennatrate rather than Branch who is big but is more of a clog than a player. He gets decent push, but nothing special. Let's just say he isn't that high on the big board I just posted.
